    That's really nice Arkwater. I like the colors you used. What's the loft on that quilt?

    GREAT looking project. How well does it drape?

    Very nice. The green fabric is 1.1 nylon with a chemical DWR and the charcoal is 1.5 oz poly ripstop. Both have a very soft hand much like silk.

    I was shooting for 3 inches, but the down that was supposed to be 750 seems more like 800. I can consistently measure 3.25 inches. I am very pleased with the quality of the down. It has a lot less feathers than the 900fp stuff I used in the red quilt. I used 450 grams (32 per baffle), and I have at least 500 left. There was only supposed to be 900 in the box.
